For those who don’t know, I used to run a social network about Pokémon. Unfortunately, those jerks decided to start charging money to use their services so my social network is now being shut down. I don’t care THAT much, as Facebook kinda serves the same purpose. However, I did have some blogs that I’d written that I don’t want to lose when they delete my network. So I’m going to do a Flashback Blog for the next few days, re-sharing my blogs and keeping them on THIS blog to be cherished… forever! 😛

I’m Scared of Ho-Oh
Happy Easter everyone! I don’t really celebrate the holiday, but I do enjoy picking up piles of 50% off Easter candy the day after! lol
Anyway, to ‘celebrate’ Easter this year, I’ve been hatching Turtwig Eggs. In Pokemon Diamond. Why???
Cuz I’m scared of Ho-Oh! I recently beat the 8th gym in HG. Next I’m supposed to battle the Kimono Girls and then climb to the top of a tower, view a fantastic cut-scene involving the Kimono Girls and Ho-Oh’s arrival, and finally battle the giant bird and capture him as my own.
But I’m too scared. It’s a lot of pressure. I’m still debating if I want to use my Master Ball on Ho-Oh or save it for later.
So instead of dealing with Ho-Oh, I’ve been procrastinating. Specifically, last night I made a serious effort to start succeeding in the Pokeathalon. And succeed I did!
As you can see, I received the highest score and the Gold Medal in the Speed Competition at the Pokeathalon! I will post some info on the HG/SS Forum regarding the strategies for these events. My main goal with the Speed Competition was to find a use for some of the ‘less effective’ battling Pokemon. Specifically, the two special Pichu’s that I obtained via GameStop and the Spiky-Eared Pichu event. Check out how cute my team was!
From left to right, we have: Spiky-Eared Pichu, Pikachu-Colored Pichu, and Surfing Pikachu. I must say, my two little Pichu’s were GREAT in this event! I ended up using the Pikachu-Colored Pichu in the Jumping Competition too, and he kicked ass there as well! GOOOOO PICHU!!!! ❤
So that’s what I’m currently working on in HG while I build up my Pokemon, and my own courage to do what I have to do lol! But I’m not ready yet. That’s why I’ve been hatching eggs. It’s Easter after all, so I figured I should mess around with some eggs. 😛 I’m going to transfer all my baby Turtwigs to “My Pokemon Ranch” (WiiWare) and hopefully start making a real dent in the requirements for obtaining a Mew from Hayley at the Ranch. It’s gonna take a while but I’ll get it someday! xD
